This webinar is organised by the Hong Kong Green Building Council.

How do we know if our building is healthy? How can we make sure they continue to improve our comfort and enhance, not compromise, our wellness and wellbeing?

The focus of sustainable buildings has shifted from energy and operation efficiency to the wellbeing of people working and living in them. The recent Covid-19 outbreak has further sharpened this focus and brought immerse attention to the role buildings can play to prevent/reduce potential health risks and enhance comfort and wellbeing of occupants.

The webinar will discuss the critical role of built environment and the steps to re-design our buildings in creating a healthy workplace. The speaker will talk about how big data can be used as a ‘health audit’ for our buildings. By continuously monitoring and analysing health-focused data such as indoor air quality as well as thermal, visual and acoustic comfort of occupants, we can make tailored recommendations to reduce potential health risks and improve the overall environment for occupants' health and wellbeing.
